2 Grand Slams In A Game... In Back-To-Back Innings

((HT: League Stew))

Marlins minor leaguer Jake Marisnick hit two grand slams in back-to-back innings last night as double-A affiliate Jacksonville beat Pensacola 11-2.

For those of you keeping track, he is now hitting a robust .248 after his 9 RBI performance. The RBI are tied for the most in a Southern League game since Butch Garcia in 1989...

Here's Marisnick's handiwork...

The Marlins' number two-rated prospect entered the game in a 2-for-26 slump, but he might be turning it around.

"Just little things I've been working on with Kevin Randel, the hitting coach," he said. "Just kind of got up there and let it happen. Sometimes I've been overswinging and that gets me into a bad situation."

Josh Ravin, the pitcher who gave up both slams, went the sum total of an inning-and-a-third, giving up six earned runs, and his ERA is now 7.15... Don't you worry none... it's not the highest ERA on the team at present...

Here's Marisnick's post-game interview, presumably in the bowels of the stadium in Pensacola
